Peak Consult Perspective for The Dragon
In the jungle of consumer and so-called "High-End" loudspeakers, there are some brands actually reaching for higher goals. Peak Consult is one of them, but how is that done?
Countless hours of measurement and critical listening by many audiophile ears have gone into making the finest three-way loudspeaker available. An impedance curve and electrical phase character like an electrostatic speaker, the final blend of art and technology have made The Dragon an uncompromising work of art. The State of Art and finest Loudspeaker has seen the light of dawn. It will set new trends to the High End meaning of speakers.
The multifaceted enclosure is handcrafted in our own facilities in Denmark by skilled Danish artisans in a 1.5"- 3.0" HDF specially glued sandwich material covered by 1" solid wood or HDF lacquered. At all points a resonance suppresser has been used in the construction. Special resonance suppressers have also been milled into the construction. Each material panel has been measured and hand-chosen by skilled Danish artisans.
The designs optimise the off-axis response and minimize any kind of diffraction. In order to minimize acoustical waves, there are no parallel front, back, top or bottom panels. The slant of the front panel aligns the phase and timing between tweeter, midrange and woofers. All design have been made and done to the real way of acoustical performance. The enclosure makes the attack and phase behaviours of second to none.
The Danish Scan-Speak tweeter is a non-Ferro fluid 1" ring radiator, SD-2 neodymium motor with a non-resonant aluminium chamber. It features a multiple camber with low compression and a machined aluminium faceplate. Peak Consult has altered the front plate in a very different way to have a perfect behaviour that makes it to the extreme. The tweeter performs effortlessly to sonic extremes and brings the "air" as no dome tweeter before.
The dual Danish 6" Audiotechnology midrange is hand-built specifically for optimal behaviour in The Dragon enclosure. The driver features a cone that has been uniquely shaped for this moving system and a vented magnet system that includes Symmetric Drive, optimising the linear directivity. It performs with matchless sound staging ability and an imaging tight and sharp as a Diamond. The Midrange will set new standards to midrange behaviours and will go beyond What ever have been done?
The dual Danish 11" Audiotechnology woofers is hand-built and specifically designed for The Dragon. Using new and special technology in the moving systems to make them very low-loss drivers. The huge magnets and ventilation systems makes the drivers reproduce very tight and extremely low frequencies - second to none. These drivers will set new standards to bass reproduction.
The Dragon includes an acoustical fully compensated second order crossover in the tweeter/midrange section and it have been isolated from the moving system in it's own dual sealed department. The Dragon only features the best of the best. Dual Peak foil capacitors, silver carbon resistors and oiled/waxed inductors by Duelund Coherent products.
The low frequency includes only oiled/waxed-foiled inductors from Duelund Coherent products. The low frequencies have also been altered by our straight level impedance control. All sealed in its own isolated compartment.
Every component has been chosen for its sonic and musical behaviour, with no consideration for cost. The crossover is hardwired with silver soldering and sealed to avoid microphony distortion and to shield it from electrical and magnetic radiation from rest of the system.
Peak Consult use a special OEM wire from the US cable company: Stereovox
The Bi-wire termination is done with the best of the best: WBT platinum signature
The name?The Dragon boasts an extremely linear frequency response, on-axis as well as of-axis. This makes it a very accurate loudspeaker in a "real World" environment. The name says it all; the speaker performs and looks second to none. The Dragon will protect you and always bring you the best, when you get the heart of a dragon.
